Hi All,

Thanks for clarifying my doubt.

I have one query here.

If my subnet is say

and in range if i specify


Then , , or are part of this
range. Will have to explicitly exclude all the addresses from this range ?
That would be so many addresses to exclude.

And if we were to exclude the .0 's and .255's it would be many ranges we
would end up specifying.

Please correct me if I am wrong.
